Piece brought back from a photo safari in Eastern Africa - Tanzania / Kenya.
African statues from the Nyamwesi country (Nyamwezi) are unusual. Relatively little is known about them.
They could be representations of ancestors.
This one matches the aesthetic canons of the ethnic group with simplicity of shapes and a certain naivety bringing back to the fundamentals.
Some slightly visible cracks on the legs and foot.
Shipment within 24 working hours on business days.
Track and trace included.
With acknowledgement of receipt.
